Protect yourself against infection – clean hands without using water and soap

Poor hand hygiene is the number one cause of transmission of the common cold, influenza and numerous other illnesses. The Danish Council for Better Hygiene estimates that poor hygiene kills more than 3,000 Danes every year, causes more than one million sick days and costs society close to DKK 4 billion a year. Currently, Influenza H1N1 is the strain that people should be particularly careful not to contract.

The best thing to do to avoid infection is to ensure good hand hygiene.
But what do you do if you are a travelling consultant, work as a truck driver or in construction and don’t have access to water and soap during the day?

An alternative to water and soap is to use an antibacterial product, such as SkinOcare’s Clean HANDS, which is an antibacterial hand spray that disinfects the hands without using water and soap. Perfect for when you’re on the road and don’t have access to water and soap.

SkinOcare Clean HANDS can also be beneficial when used in schools, offices, for your keyboard, mouse and telephone. A study from the University of Arizona showed that mice, keyboards and telephones can contain up to four times as many bacteria as a toilet seat and that bacteria thrive in the workplace.

SkinOcare Clean HANDS contains no perfume, colour or preservatives and is available as a handy 30 ml hand spray for a suggested retail price of DKK 24.95 or as a 100 ml disinfecting gel for a suggested retail price of DKK 29.95 to throw in your school bag, purse or pocket, or leave out on your desk.

SkinOcare Clean HANDS is also available as a 250 ml gel for a suggested retail price of DKK 49.95, suited for production facilities, offices, canteens, hospitals, etc. Available at select pharmacies, drugstores, health food stores and grocery stores.
